What is Asylum? Asylum is a form of protection granted to individuals who have fled their country or nation of origin and meet the international definition of a refugee. The right to Asylum is a universal right, and countries have an obligation to protect those who are fleeing persecution, war or violence in their home country. Our New York immigration asylum law firm has vast experience in representing those fleeing persecution in their native countries based on race, religion, membership in a social group, political opinion, or nationality. We have represented people from all over the world who faced persecution by the governments of their countries or by groups that their governments were unable or unwilling to stop. We will actively assist you during every step of your asylum case:
- Trial preparation
- Obtaining expert reports and testimony
- Speaking with witnesses and family members to help them prepare statements or affidavits
- Preparing and submitting extensive legal memoranda and arguments in support of an application for immigration asylum
- Providing representation before the Immigration Court and on appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals and beyond
New York immigration asylum lawyers at The Law Office of Robert J. Maher, PC, are here to protect your immigration rights, and we want to help. Immigration policies, laws, and regulations change over time. These changes affect the rights of asylum seekers and immigrants. It is extremely important to stay informed of these changes because even seemingly small changes can have a dramatic impact on individuals seeking asylum or applying for an immigration benefit.
My fellow Americans, we are and always will be a nation of immigrants. We were strangers once, too.
We can answer many of your immigration questions in an initial consultation either by phone or in person.
We will help you assess your situation, identify the immigration issues, and provide information you need to make an informed decision.
